This was a very nice hotel with comfortable rooms (and AC that worked really well, much to my wife's chagrin!). It's in a good location and has a very acceptable restaurant.
It also has peculiar showers.
The shower pan is sloped so that at the end that's away from the shower head it is level with the floor. It has a European style shower which took me a little while to get used to. Anyhow, if you stay in the shower for very long with the water running, it overflows from the shower pan and leaks way out into the bedroom. We thought there was something wrong, but when the technician came up to examine it, he said it was a design flaw and all the showers in the hotel were like this. So we simply confined ourselves to rinse-soap-rinse showers for the duration of the trip.
Otherwise the place was very good. I had a real, honest-to-goodness USA-style hamburger for dinner one night with some of the best French Fries I 've ever had. I know, I should have been "eating native", but I was getting a little tired of tanjines.
